“A realistic and probing portrait. It is disturbing to the point of shocking to read Crapanzano’s authentic, vividly written account of the incredible boredom and futility of Bennett’s reservation life and those of his people.”—Publishers Weekly
“It is a plain, unadorned document, vivid, concrete, accessible. . . . It will stay in the mind longer than more ponderous tomes.”—New York Times
(New York Times)
